It happens every day. In fact, it is pretty hard to avoid it. There are some things that can only be understood with a slap on the forehead. Things so mind-boggling that one wonders how humans managed to evolve thumbs while being this mentally inept. Case in point:
Just from the title you know it is going to be good. But I will let the creator of the subreddit explain:
This subreddit is for exposing the hate and bigotry of the so-called “men’s rights movement.” We comb the internet for egregious examples of hate and post them here — whether it’s cissexism, homophobia, or misogyny, its posted here.
We are not against the concept of men’s rights, we are against the “men’s rights movement” — if it can even be called that.
Yes, of course. You are not against the concept of men’s rights, so you call your subreddit “Against Men’s Rights”. One must wonder whether the creator of the subreddit knows how English works. Likewise, by “combing the internet for egregious examples of hate” the creator really means nitpicking comments from men’s rights subreddits and linking to posts from Manboobz because that is the bulk of what is on the site.
Also, for the feminists who might read this, linking to anything David Futrelle writes about the men’s rights movement is like linking to anything Glen Beck writes about the gay rights movement. To say it is inaccurate is being kind. In this case it is a particularly bad idea to link to that article because that is the one where Glenn Sacks tore Futrelle apart for lying about Glenn Sacks’ campaign against DART.
If you were not sure that the subreddit was an exercise in juvenile stupidity, as if the blogs the creator links to were not enough evidence, there is also this:
ALERT: the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated r/mensrights a hate hub. Due to MRA tactics of harassment, intimidation, and violence, we strongly urge readers to take measures to protect their personal safety before engaging with MRAs.
Let me make this clear: no one has to support men’s rights. It is perfectly fine for people like these feminists to oppose preventing physical and sexual violence against men, addressing male suicide, talking about father’s rights, and addressing sexism and discrimination against men. Granted, writing off men’s problems makes you look like a callous person, but one is entitled to look as apathetic and inhumane as one wants.
However, it also make you look really stupid because you are not only failing to actually address any of the men’s rights movement’s points, but you apparently do not realize that saying you are against men’s rights means people will think you are against men’s rights.
Come on, subreddit feminists. Most bigots are smart enough not to openly reveal their bigotry in the tile of their website.
